The Intown Jewish Preschool celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 15, with a day on rather than a day off. Fathers, uncles and other important men were invited to the classrooms for Guys’ Day of service and family bonding.

The 3- and 4-year-olds had learned that King was from Atlanta and taught about respect and love.

They also had received an important lesson by studying two eggs, one brown and one white, and finding that although they are different outside, they are the same inside.

The day of service included collecting toiletries, making sandwiches and creating keychains for people at the Mercy Mission on Ponce de Leon Avenue and the women at Rebecca’s Tent in Morningside. Pots were decorated and had plants put in them for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
